bio johnJohn is a Certified Travel Associate and a registered BritAgent, has been a Luxury Travel Advisor since 1992, and has traveled extensively all of his life.

One of John’s great loves is Italy; the beautiful landscape, friendly people, and regional food and wines draw him to this wonderful country. John’s knowledge of Italy is extensive as he travels there as often as possible. Two of John’s other favorite destinations are the game preserves of Southern Africa and the Galapagos Islands. “There is nothing better than seeing the Big Five in their native habitat in South Africa and the unspoiled flora and fauna of the Galapagos Islands.”

John recently visited the countries of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. He thoroughly enjoyed the cuisine of the region, climbed the temples in Angor Wat, cruised down the Mekong River in Laos, and enjoyed staying in Bangkok and sophisticated Hong Kong at the end of the trip.

John avidly participates in travel industry events and trade shows including the annual Virtuoso Travel Week attended by over 4,000 leaders in the luxury travel market.

When John is not traveling, he resides in Wrigleyville and is an avid “foodie” and Chicago sports fan.
